Effective Parenting in a Defective World

Hope you are pumped to learn more this week about how to raise your children God's way in these difficult times. Last week we looked at our focus and where it should be, on Jesus alone and conforming to His image. Forget what the world wants for your kids, our primary target is helping them to become more and more like Jesus in every aspect. It's making God's dream the priority rather than the world's dream for your children.

We also looked at the importance of us as parents becoming what we should be in Christ as role models for our children. The best thing you can give your kids is who you are. They will do what you do, more is caught than taught. You must be what you want your kids to become. Let them see your Christian growth and be real with them (Luke 6:40).

This week we focus on building relationships that bond. Difficult times will come and we need the cement of Christ-centered relationships in the context of our family to weather the storms. We will be looking at eight keys for building relationships that bond. You won't want to miss it!
